#### Question

In the estimation of sulphur by Carius method, 0.468 g of an organic sulphur compound afforded 0.668 g of barium sulphate. Find out the percentage of sulphur in the given compound.

#### Solution 1

Total mass of organic compound = 0.468 g [Given]

Mass of barium sulphate formed = 0.668 g [Given]

1 mol of BaSO4 = 233 g of BaSO4 = 32 g of sulphur

Thus, 0.668 g of BaSO4 contains  (32xx0.668)/233 g of sulphur = 0.0917 g of sulphur

Therefore, percentage of sulphur = 0.0197/0.468 xx 100 =  19.59 %

Hence, the percentage of sulphur in the given compound is 19.59 %

#### Solution 2

Mass of the compound = 0.468 g

Mass of barium sulphate= 0.668 g

Percentage of sulphur = 32/233 xx "Mass of barium sulphate"/"Mass of compound" xx 100

= 32/233 xx (0.668 g)/(0.468 g) xx 100 = 19.60 %

Is there an error in this question or solution?
